Guess who's back? Sure, that Voltaire's Glove guy has really classed up the joint, what with his astute commentary and long-form observations on the state of Deadspin commenting, but isn't it time that we have some standards around Favorite-land?
[murmurs from offstage]
We don't? Oh good, then I can get on with this.
It was fucking Soccer Day in the U.S. of A. today, which meant that every goddamn post was a Screamer re-post, which meant every goddamn post was full of earnest, well-meaning, soccer commentary and also complete fucking idiots. Jokes were in short supply today, probably because everyone was busy pretending to like footkick.
Still, there were a few, and so I bring you the...
Favorites, in no particular order:
Getting the soccer and xenophobia themes established nicely was PedroiasBaldSpot with this history-based joke in the Brazil Flood post. There was a lot of shitty WWII-based humor on the 'net today, and this might have been the least bad of them.
In the Suarez Selfie post, SaveToFavorites brings us the Comment of the Day with this bit of misdirected dialogue goofing on Mario Balotelli. The punchline on this one is good enough, but the absurd aftershock puts it over the top. Nicely done.
Capping off the Favorites today is pkellen2313 with this bit of stupidity in the Big Men post. It's funny because these giants have feelings, I think! Well, I laughed, so piss off.
Total Fucking Duds
Nah. Not on a day with a soccer losswin.
Godspeed, you idiots, and add your own highlights below.
